Weellll, I Tried....

I'm trying to branch out and do a few different things in my cross-stitching. After making my biscornu, I decided to try a pinkeep drum. The cross-stitching went just fine - LOL! It was the sewing up part that gave me fits. After stitching this up, and then taking it apart and trying it again, this was my finished product! I apologize to the designer, Stacy Nash, for my bungling it so badly! I was almost too embarassed to even put it on my blog! I have little hand sewing skills. I hope to get better. I'm starting another biscornu tonight. As for one day trying another pinkeep drum - well, let me say - I don't think so - ha!

September Days...

"September days have the warmth of summer in their briefer hours, but in their lengthening evenings a prophetic breath of autumn. The cricket chirps in the noontide, making the most of what remains of his brief life. The bumblebee is busy among the clover blossoms of the aftermath, and their shrill and dreamy hum hold the outdoor world above the voices of the song birds, now silent or departed."
